Chateau Pavie Macquin St. Emilion 2003 French Red Bordeaux Wine 750 mL
Chateau Pavie Macquin St. Emilion 2003 French Red Bordeaux Wine 750 mL

Extremely limited, No discounts! 95 Points - Wine Advocate, April 2006 "This tremendous terroir has been brought back to life over the last 15 years by Nicolas Thienpont and Stephane Derenoncourt. Its 37-acre vineyard, planted in deep clay and limestone soils, is composed of 70% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Franc, and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon. Pavie-Macquin is not far from Gerard Perse's little treasure, Pavie-Decesse. The 2003 Pavie-Macquin turned out brilliantly, no doubt because its soils supported the summer's torrid heat and drought. Tipping the scales at 13.8% alcohol, it boasts an opaque purple color along with a gorgeous nose of blackberries, smoked meats, licorice, incense, and barbecue spices. Huge fruit on the attack is followed by a powerful, masculine wine with huge extract, high tannin, low acidity, and formidable power. Despite its low acidity, this is a wine to forget for 3-4 years, and drink over the following 20-25 years. When fully mature, this brilliant effort should rival the 2000 and 1998." -Robert Parker 96 Points - Wine Spectator, March 2006 "Incredible nose of raspberry jam with vanilla and floral undertones. Full-bodied, with velvety, caressing tannins and loads of fruit on the finish. Best after 2010. 3,330 cases made." -James Suckling

Chateau Pavie St. Emilion 2003 Red Bordeaux Wine

Extremely limited, No discounts! 98+ Points - Wine Advocate, April 2006 "This 92-acre vineyard, which enjoys an impeccable southern orientation, is composed of limestone on the upper slopes, clay and limestone in the middle, and sand and clay at the base. Proprietor Gerard Perse, who has done a brilliant job since acquiring the estate in 1998, continues to push the envelope of quality to higher and higher heights. Planted with 70% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc, and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, the grapes receive kid glove treatment with hand-harvesting into small plastic lugs, two triage tables, and aging for 28 months in 100% new oak that is purchased in advance, then air-dried and coopered according to Perse's specifications. In short, the man is a perfectionist, and the quality of all the estates he owns has soared dramatically." -Robert Parker 96 Points - Wine Spectator, July 2006 "Dark purple. Shows intense aromas of raisin, coffee and treacle tart. Very, very ripe. Full-bodied, superrich and velvety. This is so layered and powerful. Blockbuster. Best after 2008. 7,500 cases made." -James Suckling

Chateau Rieussec Sauternes 1988 French Dessert Wine
Chateau Rieussec Sauternes 1988 French Dessert Wine

Extremely Limited! No Discounts rated 93 points Wine Advocate April 1995

"Although the 1988 received the highest marks of the 1988, 1989 and 1990 vintages, it remains a very backward wine. Full-bodied and powerful, extremely rich and dense, it may be the least evolved 1988. The nose offers enticing coconut, orange, vanilla, and honeyed scents. The flavors are highly extracted. The wine's acidity and youthfulness suggest this wine needs another 5-10 years of cellaring. It should keep for 30 years.Drink 2000-2025" -Robert Parker rated 90 points Winespectator "A beautiful, fresh and elegant Sauternes, with apple pie, lemon and candied apple on the nose. Full-bodied, with bright and clean aniseed, apple and apricot flavors. Medium-sweet and a crisp finish. Bordeaux blind retrospective (2008). Drink now." -James Suckling

"Almost invisible wood combines with dense, ripe and fresh stone and game-infused aromas that are followed by earthy, intense and tautly muscular flavors that possess excellent detail and serious depth and length on the mouth coating finish. Excellent quality in a package that should reward up to a decade of cellaring." -Allen Meadows

Dominio de Pingus  Pingus 2011 Red Spanish Wine
Dominio de Pingus Pingus 2011 Red Spanish Wine

eRobertParker.com #202

Rated (94-96) Aug 2012 Drink: 2020 - 2035

"The 2011 Pingus has a gorgeous, pure black cherry, cassis and blueberry scented bouquet interlaced by orange blossom and apricot. The oak is beautifully assimilated into the aromatic profile. The palate is full-bodied with a decadent entry. The tannins are ripe and rounded, imparting great tension and focus. There is both dimension and grace to this formidable Pingus that should blossom once it finishes its gestation. This is an outstanding Ribera del Duero wine. Drink 2020-2035+. "  Neal Martin

Dominus Estate 2013 California Red Napa Wine 750 mL
Dominus Estate 2013 California Red Napa Wine 750 mL

100 Points - Robert Parker, October 2015

"The 2013 Dominus is, to my way of thinking, one of the most profound wines Christian Moueix has yet made in his rather brilliant winemaking history, both in France and in Napa Valley. This wine, with very low yields of only 3,500 cases and a final blend of 89% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Petit Verdot and 4% Cabernet Franc, offers up notes of cedar wood, forest floor, loamy soil and oodles of blackberry and blackcurrant fruit. Very opaque purple in color, super-pure and intense, this wine has low acidity, but ripe, noticeable tannins. This is a 30- to 40-year wine and a profound effort from this famous vineyard in Yountville. Drink it over the next 40+ years." - Robert Parker

Emilio Moro Malleolus de Valderramiro 2005 1.5L Red Spanish Wine

These are magnums (1.5L)! 97 Points - Wine Advocate, June 2010 "The 2005 Malleolus de Valderramiro is a dense opaque purple color. It has a roasted character along with Asian spices, incense, and a cocktail of black fruits. Powerful on the palate, this is a packed effort with loads of fruit and tannin that will require a minimum of 8-10 years to become approachable." -Jay Miller

Foghat Cellars, Paso Robles Cabernet Sauvignon Red California Wine 750 mL

"The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon possesses a classic profile with aromas of dark red fruits. Bright and rich on the palate, this wine is brimming with flavors of red currants and cassis and has an underlying minerality. A strong mid-palate and well integrated tannins lead to a long seamless finish. Delicious now, this wine will continue to develop for years to come." - The Winery
